Understanding Our Orisha - Chango and Ochun

Our previous discussion focused on Oya and Yemaya. This time, we will focus on Chango and Oshun.

Oshun is known for her sensuality and her association with the river. Chango is the ultimate symbol of male power and fertility – the powerful force that yields lightning. These descriptions may seem simple and straight forward, but they way theses Orisha are incorporated into our lives cannot be described by one line sentences.

Let us consider the following questions while we formulate a few of our own:

• Why is the relationship between Obatala and Chango just as important as the relationship between Ochun and Chango?

• Why is Chango considered to be the model of a politician? • How are Ochun and Obatala related?

• Ochun is known as the eternal flirt. Why is this description so misleading and misunderstood?

• What lessons do Chango and Ochun teach us, and why is their energy so important in our lives?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
